Amerikaanse oorlogsfilm onder regie van Randall Wallace uit 2001, met o.a. Mel Gibson, Madeleine Stowe, Greg Kinnear en Sam Elliott. Onervaren Amerikaanse militairen worden in 'The Valley of Death' omsingeld door een enorme overmacht van goedgeoefende en zwaarbewapende Noord-Vietnamese soldaten. Steun van de mariniers krijgen ze niet, zodat een verschrikkelijk gevecht op leven en dood de enige uitweg vormt. Danny Graydon (BBC Movies Reviews,i) gaf 3 (van 5) sterren: 'It's unlikley you'll learn anything new about the war, but Wallace's emotional message and refreshingly non-demonised enemy make an effective tribute.' Geen extra's.
